First Impression: More Magic
Date toured: December 2011
Capt. Alex Whicher told me during my tour that the yacht is ideal for adult couples thanks to its three cabins with double and queen beds.
“We get mostly adult couples for charter, and also families with adult or teenage kids,” Whicher told me. “Lately we’ve been getting a lot of 50- and 60-year-old couples, and we absolutely love that. Those are very entertaining charters because the people are really interesting.”
Whicher’s wife, Emma Whicher, serves as More Magic’s chef. She has been sailing since she was a toddler, has raced internationally in yachting competitions, and has spent years cooking for crowds at regattas. She has further refined her skills with courses at well-known culinary institutions in the United Kingdom.
More Magic offers plenty of ways to work of the calories coming out of the galley. The yacht has a pair of underwater scooters, a tender for skiing and wake boarding, several inflatable kayaks, snorkeling gear, fishing equipment, and more.
The yacht is expected to move to the Bahamas during spring 2012 and then possibly charter in New England and Atlantic Canada during summer 2012. The lowest weekly base rate is $18,000 for six guests.
